A new golf course designed by Greg Norman has opened in Vietnam.
The Bluffs Ho Tram Strip, which is located on Vietnam’s south-central coast, forms part of the Grand Ho Tram Strip integrated resort complex, and is set to become one of the most sought-after courses in the country. An 18-hole, par-71 championship course, The Bluffs is along more than 3km of coastal land, overlooking sandy beaches and the South China Sea.
Being a links-style course, golfers will be presented with numerous challenges including strong winds and rough coastal terrain.
Facilities will include a 2,300m² clubhouse with several dining outlets, plus a driving range with more than 3,000m² of practice and training facilities.
“This is one of only two pieces of land of this quality and character that I have ever been given to work with, the other being Doonbeg in the south of Ireland,” said Norman.
The highest point of the course is 50 metres above sea-level, on the 15th green. According to developers however, the most spectacular spots come on the 4th hole, where golfers are presented with a 360⁰ view of the course, the surrounding forest and the sea. Green fees at the course are expected to be in the region of US$200.
The Bluffs is Greg Norman’s second golf project in Vietnam, following the Dunes Course at the Danang Golf Club, on Vietnam’s central coast.
